Mogambo Springs, the Spa at Plantation Bay

Mogambo Springs, the spa at Plantation Bay has been internationally recognized by some of the most respected entities in the wellness and spa industry in Asia. Asia Spa magazine, the leading publication in the continent for spa aficionados and industry players, listed Mogambo Springs one of the top 7 spas in the country in March 2010. In 2009, it was cited the Best Spa Experience in the country by the Asia Spa and Wellness Festival Gold Awards. Mogambo Springs was short-listed for the Best Spa Therapist Team of the Year by Asia Spa’s Crystal Awards in Hong Kong, November 2008.

The spa’s setting is designed to resemble an 18th century Tokugawa Japanese village with its own thundering waterfalls, creek, and fog-like mist. Our spa’s facilities includes hot pools with Jacuzzi jets, Thalassic pool, cascading massage waterfalls, needle shower nook, Dry Sauna and Steam room.  You can enjoy these facilities for free if you book any of our spa services.

Recreational Activities

Plantation Bay is a symphony in water, with enough water features to keep most families happy for days on end. There are 2.3 hectares of saltwater lagoons and four freshwater pools of outstanding design. At the Dive Shop on Galapagos Beach, snorkel, Jet-ski, Hobie cat and Parasail to your heart’s content.

When not in the water, there are plenty of complimentary recreational activities, including wall-climbing and archery lessons, fishing and fish-feeding, yoga and boxing sessions. There are daily scheduled activities for children, teens and adults. There’s a tennis court and an indoor firing range with every imaginable class of firearm.

Food and Beverage

In the area of food, most resorts under-perform and overcharge. Plantation Bay takes pride in serving excellent food at reasonable prices.

Experience each restaurant’s unique ambiance and superb dishes for a gastronomical experience you’ll savor with delight.

Palermo, our Mediterranean-inspired restaurant, is open for light breakfasts, great coffee all day, and Spanish tapas and Italian pastas for dinner.

Kilimanjaro Kafe is situated in the middle of one of our freshwater swimming pools. Open 24 hours, there’s international cuisine for everyone here, from steaks to vegetarian dishes, Filipino to Korean favorites, and tasty appetizers to tempting desserts.

Kilimanjaro Kafe serves a stunning themed breakfast buffet every morning.  Guest favorites include Chinese siomai and pork charsui, Filipino danggit (local dried fish) and chicken empanaditas, Mexican chile con carne and quesadillas, and Old Virginia eggs Benedict and whole wheat pancakes made from scratch. New themed breakfasts have been recently introduced, also with guest favorites: conxihas con farosa and seafood salad for the Brazilian breakfast, and the Italian salata caprese, poached egg with pesto and anchovies, and pork piccata Milanese.

Fiji Restaurant overlooks the beach and serves a wide array of Pacific Rim cuisine. Dine in air-conditioned interiors or sit al fresco and take in the fresh sea breeze. Choose from a generous variety of Asian dishes and fresh seafood. Our sizzling Polynesian spareribs have been described as “so finger-licking’ good.” For dessert, try the three-chocolate fascination, baked Alaska or crepes samurai, which are nothing short of sinful.

The Philippine Tatler listed Palermo and Fiji Restaurant in their Best Restaurants for 6 years running, 2008 to 2013. (Mind you, we didn’t pay them to cover us – their discriminating panel of reviewers dined incognito.) Service in all our restaurants is noted to be “friendly, well-trained and quick. The staff are omnipresent to see to all the needs of the guests.”

Not on Tatler’s list but still earning plenty of praise from its diners is Savannah Grill, which serves fast-food favorites with five-star flair. Situated by Savannah Pool, it is an ideal place to bring your children for swimming and afternoon snacks. If you don’t agree that our Powerhouse Burger is the best you’ve ever had, tell us after a couple of bites and we’ll give you your money back.

There’s something different every night at Plantation Bay Resort and Spa.  Dine and be entertained in our themed buffet dinners. We have Rockin USA, Hawaian Luau, Filipino fiesta, Viva España, Sahara nights and Cebu’s first-ever Brazilian Fever.

Plantation Bay Resort and Spa is also a proud member of the Confrerie de la Chaine des Rotisseurs and the Ordre Mondial des Gourmets Degustateurs.
